With three weeks still to register, over 700 students from over 100 universities across the UK, Europe & worldwide have already signed up for the Search For A Star & d3t Rising Star challenges.
In what’s shaping up to be the largest ever Search For A Star & d3t Rising Star challenges, Staffordshire University have become the first ever university to put forward a hundred students, breaking previous records weeks ahead of the December 18th deadline!
With the shift to online events this year, our Get In The Game student careers talks have reached a much larger and wider-ranging audience than the limitations our usual university visits allow. This shift has seen some big changes in the universities that are signing up for Search For A Star this year, and most notably, the number of signups that we’ve received! We’ve grown at an unprecedented rate so far and are on track to beat all previous records
As with previous years, we’re still seeing very promising numbers from some of the UK’s leading games universities, with Falmouth University, the University of Huddersfield, UCLAN, the University of South Wales, Sheffield Hallam University, the University of Hertfordshire and De Montfort University all following the impressive lead set by Staffordshire University.
Between them, they have a strong record of producing some of the most exemplary finalists and winners over the past few years and we’re greatly looking forward to seeing how their students fare this year.
